Metrc: Accurate Tracking Tips from CRA

December 1, 2023:  To further assist licensees achieve compliance through accurate tracking, the Cannabis Regulatory Agency is providing guidance for a couple of issues found during compliance audits.

Notice to Cultivators, Producers and Sales Locations Re: Packaging Pre-rolls as Count-Based Products

If an item is pre-weighed and sold by the unit, the Metrc item category should be a count-based item. If an item is weighed just prior to sale, a weight-based category should be used.

Packages of raw pre-rolls should be created as Shake/Trim (prepackaged).

If the weight of a single pre-roll is 1 gram and the package is sold individually, then the unit weight should be 1 gram.

If the 1 gram pre-roll is sold in 5 packs, then the unit weight should be 5 grams.

It is important to check the unit weight of all items created before distribution to ensure it is accurate. Inaccurate unit weights can appear as oversales. For example: if the unit weight for a 1 gram pre-roll is inaccurately entered as 1oz, every time a sales location sells the 1 gram pre-roll the transaction amount will show 1oz. If a customer buys three 1 gram pre-rolls, the transaction will exceed the allowable limit of 2.5oz.

Notice to Sales Locations Re: Transaction Limit for Concentrate Products

Adult-use consumers may not purchase more than 15 grams of concentrate in a single transaction, which includes any combination of the following: inhalable compound concentrates (infused pre-rolls, moonrocks), concentrates (shatter, live resin) and vape carts.

The CRA will be auditing sales transactions in Metrc. Any retailers found to sell more than 15 grams of concentrate in a single transaction to adult-use consumers are in violation of R 420.506(3) and are at risk for disciplinary action.
